The Free HIV Testing for College Students Program, sponsored by STDcheck.com, gives Richland College students confidential HIV tests in private, off-campus locations at no cost. It is our way of trying to help curb the STD epidemic on college campuses all over the Unites States.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 4 new HIV infections occur among young, sexually active people between the ages of 13 and 24. If you're unsure of your HIV status, you and everyone you engage in sexual activity with are at risk. Take charge of your health and create safe lifelong sexual habits now.
Multiple locations near the Richland College campus and all over the Dallas area make it easy for students to fit HIV testing into their busy schedule. Some of the labs we use are even open on Saturdays. You can get tested the same day you reserve your free HIV test.
Students can use their .edu email address to verify their status as a Richland College student and reserve a free HIV test today.
To find your nearest testing location, simply enter your zip code into our Lab Locator tool. A lab referral, signed by a physician, will be emailed to you with a unique identification code that you will take to your selected testing center. When you get to the lab, you don't have to give your name or fill out any paperwork. Testing takes less than 5 minutes and doesn't require an appointment. Our statewide network of physicians will review your results and notify you of your status within 24 hours. Nothing goes on your medical record or gets reported to your health insurance company. It doesn't get simpler than that.
